Does JAL Have 777-300ER's On Order?

Thu May 06, 2004 2:17 am

I took the below photo of a JAL 777-300 @ BFI a few day's ago. Usually, 777's are tested out of Everett, except for the 777-300ER's which were based out of BFI during the certification program.

The registration number has been used by the second 777-300ER airframe, but is now on this aircraft.

So my question is, does JAL have 777-300ER's on order, and can anyone confirm if the plane in the photograph is an ER or not?

Yes they do. They are getting the second 773ER to be delivered.

It's the same aircraft.

Excellent, thank you all for clearing this up so quickly. I originally uploaded it as an ER, but submitted a correction after recieving email that JAL is NOT recieving any ER's.

Thanks again!

Another case where the engine doesn't look as big as expected due to the angle.

The GP7200 on the 343 is the first case this week.

Bronko-

You were right the first time. JAL ordered 8 777-300ERs on March 31, 2000, which was the launch order for the type. N5016R was the second prototype and wore the Boeing 773ER colors for a while, but was recently repainted in JAL colors in preparation for delivery. You can see the raked wingtips in your photo outboard of the wingtip nav lights.

You must mean the Trent 900.

I believe its 16 773ER's going to JAL? Anyone can correct me but that what I remember hearing.
